    Quick question -- the cases they're finding through the government testing scheme, are they clarifying if they are symptomatic or not? (i.e. did they go to be tested because they weren't feeling well? Or are these genuine cases where they wouldn't have been discovered if it hadn't been for the city-wide testing scheme?)

    According to the same Twitter account Shri has shared above, 3/5 found under UCTP were already sick, 4/11 in total. Not too sure where the numbers are coming from though.

    I have asked and they won't can't say. It is also not stated how many of the positives we from known close contact of previous cases.

    The lack of false positive data is also quite remarkable. It would be nice to know.
